Elfje, Poetry by Sarah

Daffodils

Inspired by Mick E. Talbot who introduced me to Elfje…

Bulbs
Sprout green
Their fingers reaching
Towards the golden sunlight
Blooming.

Author’s Note: These bulbs were in the ground when we moved into our house in 2011. Every year, I try to dig them up (I’m not a fan of daffodils) and the following year, they continue to pop up again. It’s become a bit of a household joke about the daffs’ resilience and persistence. At least I got a poem out of them this time…

    1. I know I know…my hubby like ’em. I just don’t like the way they wilt and die and leave me with a mess to clean up after only a brief period of blooming…haha, first world problems hey!?!

    1. Thanks so much! 😃 I’d never heard of Elfje before so this is my first attempt. Another blogger (Mick E Talbot) introduced me to it and challenged me to take part. I really like it….hoping to do some more in the future
